i found this article on msn, and it caught my attention, well...because it does seems like (while i was in elm and part of middle) that the teachers seem to be harder on boys.
""Do Teachers Dislike Boys?
by Jeanne Sather
Could it be true that some teachers just don't like boys? When I raised this question just briefly in another column, a flood of e-mail came pouring in.
Some readers told me I was all wet, and that this was a ridiculous idea. Others pointed to research that shows that teachers actually pay more attention to boys, shortchanging girls in the process.
And then there were the messages from parents, fathers and mothers both, who felt that their children had been treated badly at school specifically because they were boys. "It is almost as if the boys' presence is less appreciated, and even burdensome," wrote the mother of a young boy.
A father writes about his youngest son, a rowdy seven-year-old who loves to laugh and make other people laugh, too. This father had his son change teachers because the teacher punished the child academically for incidents that happened on the playground.
"I tried to explain to her that his behavior on the playground was certainly worthy of punishment, but it should not conflict with his learning time," the father says. "She actually refused him a test, saying that throwing sand on the playground meant he got a zero."
The father happened to be at school to witness the incident that was the last straw: "As I approached, my son and another boy were giggling as they walked in line. The teacher yelled at [my son], who instantly turned and walked in line, but the other boy shoved him as they passed a trash can and he fell against it. The teacher yanked him up by his arm and practically dragged him along until they got to class. Once at the class, she had him stand against the wall outside of the door and told him that he did not deserve to be allowed in with the other students (including the boy who pushed him!)."
The father went to his son, hugged him, and then told the school office staff that he had witnessed the incident and was taking the boy out for ice cream. There, they had a long talk about behaving at school, and the boy told him, "Dad, I try my best, but she hates me. I can never do anything right for her."
Alyssa Jenkins, a high school teacher and the mother of two young boys, writes, "I am beginning to agree with you that many teachers do not like boys, although I rarely see that at the high school level. I think it's more of an elementary school thing."
Jenkins says that she talked to a kindergarten teacher about this recently and was told, "Because some teachers are exasperated with trying to control boys' energy, they [sometimes] recommend holding a boy back until his body catches up with his brain."
This teacher also told Jenkins that if all a young boy hears all day are comments like "Sit down" and "Stop that," he may be labeled as a problem child and his self-esteem could suffer.
Jenkins says a first-grade teacher raised another issue that causes problems for some boys: turning kindergarten into first grade. "Kindergarten is supposed to be a transition year," she writes, "and by asking children to already know how to ‘do school,' the system disadvantages boys, who mature slower than girls."
A fifth-grade teacher and father who lives in rural Iowa writes, "As far as teachers disliking boys, I think that is too general a statement. A teacher is going to be ‘annoyed' or ‘inconvenienced' by any student that is disruptive in the classroom, whether it is a boy or girl."
He says teachers need better "people skills" and need to learn tolerance and patience in dealing with all students. But he added that a supportive parent plays an important role in how these "difficult" students are handled in class.
He also points out that the teacher's gender, whether or not that teacher has children, and the gender of those children all are factors that can influence how a teacher relates to boys. "Having two boys ages three and five makes me a bit more tolerant of the behavior of boys because I deal with it daily and have managed to acquire skills to obtain the behaviors I think are appropriate," he writes. "This does not always work with other people's kids, but it is always worth a try."
Part II: Is Boyhood a Disease?
I have two boys and neither one has ever had a teacher who I thought disliked him, or who made him feel bad about being a boy.
However, I have come to believe that elementary school is a very female-centric environment, one that does not suit many young boys very well. My older son went all the way through elementary school without once having a male teacher, and the younger one did not have a male teacher until fifth grade.
Akira, my older son, was bored and frustrated by an endless parade of worksheets in the first grade, when he was having a hard time sitting at a desk and writing for long periods of time. I was also concerned about the common practice at his school of keeping kids in from recess if they had misbehaved in class.
My feeling is that an active young child who gets into trouble because he cannot sit still needs more time running around outside, not less.
I have come to believe that schools need to do much more to adapt to the way boys learn. This belief has been bolstered by the stories of other parents, who tell me that they are being pushed to put their active young sons on Ritalin. "Being a boy is not a disease," one parent writes.
I also think it is important that parents not turn their efforts to get the best for their sons into a war between boys and girls. Doing a better job for boys should not mean shortchanging girls.
But when I see a row of little girls, sitting quietly, listening to the teacher, following instructions, working cooperatively in a group, and neatly completing their assignments, it is hard not to see how much better elementary school fits the typical girl than it does the typical boy. And since I was one of those little girls, always trying to please my teacher, I know from the inside how easy it was for me to fit into school.
Meanwhile, some of the little boys are pushing and shoving, turning in homework that looks like it was dropped in a mud puddle or worse, and making toy guns out of the manipulatives in the classroom.
My feelings about boys and learning have been influenced by the book Real Boys by William Pollack, Ph.D. Pollack is a clinical psychologist and the codirector of the Center for Men at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School.
"Our schools," Pollack writes, "in general, are not sufficiently hospitable environments for boys and are not doing what they could to address boys' unique social, academic, and emotional needs. Today's typical coeducational schools have teachers and administrators who, though they don't intend it, are often not particularly empathic to boys; they use curricula, classroom materials, and teaching methods that do not respond to how boys learn; and many of these schools are hardly places most of our boys long to spend time. Put simply, I believe most of our schools are failing our boys."
Read Pollack's book, in particular the chapter "Schools: The Blackboard Jumble," for a detailed analysis of how he thinks public coed schools are failing boys. His most compelling arguments are simply numbers: Research shows that most of the students at the bottom of the class are boys, most of the students in remedial classes are boys, most of the students suspended are boys, fewer boys than girls go to college, and many more boys than girls have serious difficulties with reading and writing.
"These statistics show that there are many more boys at the lowest rungs of the ladder of academic achievement than we had ever imagined or been led to believe," he writes.
One answer, Pollack suggests, may be all-boys schools or all-boys classes within coed schools. It's an intriguing suggestion, one I've certainly never considered for my children. But it has proved to be the right answer for some.
One mother writes, "I just had to pipe in on the teachers don't like boys theory. I know it's not all schools, but it is certainly like that at our grade school! My son is now in high school (an all-boy parochial high school), and he is so happy because of the difference in the way the boys are treated that for the first time he is starting to enjoy school."
What parents can do
Would schools benefit from a better understanding of how boys and girls learn? Of course. In the meantime, parents who want to make sure their boys are being treated fairly can do a couple of things:
Don't tolerate putdowns of boys.
Know your child. Learn to present your son's strengths when talking with teachers and others. To help you do this, keep a diary, just for a week, in which you write down all the good things your son does, the things he's good at, the things he likes, the things that make him happy. This is valuable information for your child's teacher.
Work closely with your son's teacher. Ask the question, "How can I help my child succeed in your classroom?" One parent says, "If the teacher starts talking about negative things about my son, I just turn it around by saying again, 'How can I help my son succeed in your classroom?'"
Realize that this is new ground for many parents and teachers. Reread Pollack's book and others as often as you need to. And keep reminding yourself that the school should bend to the needs of students--not the other way around.""

well, ive always been into that paranormal and conspiracy stuff, but this is the most interesting. ive always been puzzled by WWll.
"Nov. 21, 2000 (CBS) Imagine a lake more mysterious than Loch Ness - a lake that hides a secret no one was meant to discover. There is such a place high up in the Austrian Alps. It is a lake
Early one morning in 1945, Nazi S.S. officers sank a number of wooden boxes in Toplitz. Legend has it that the lake conceals everything from Nazi gold to the darkest secrets of Hitler's Reich. This summer, 60 Minutes II led an underwater expedition in search of those boxes. They found evidence of a Nazi plot you didn't read about in your history books. What's in Hitler's lake? CBS News Correspondent Scott Pelley reports on the secrets at the bottom of Lake Toplitz.
It is hard to imagine a better place to hide. In a dense mountain forest, Lake Toplitz lies secluded, folded deep into the Alps of western Austria. It isn't large - just a mile long. What is daunting is the depth.
Getting to the bottom of Toplitz is a journey. After 30 feet, the sun goes dark. Below 100 feet, the water is nearly freezing. At 348 feet, the bottom comes into view. There is no life (no plants and no fish) because there is no oxygen in the water. In 1945, Toplitz was practically as remote as the moon. And with secrets to keep, Toplitz was just what the Nazis were looking for.
Feb. 23, 1945: Hitler's Reich was tumbling down. The Allies were closing in and, in bombed-out Berlin, the Nazis were scrambling to truck their most valuable secrets out of town.
Adolf Burger was expecting to die at the Sachsenhausen concentration camp. He was the man who knew too much - a Jew who had been forced to work on a top-secret Nazi plot. "That means I am someone who is privy to state secrets, they always end up dead; they were always liquidated," said Burger.
He and several other prisoners were forced to participate in a covert Nazi project creating fake currency to crash Allied economies - including that of the United States.
When the project was abruptly ended, Burger was told to pack the counterfeit currency into boxes. He didn't know at the time, but the product of his work was taken to the Nazis' last holdout: the Austrian mountains called the Alpine Fortress. The Nazis planned to evacuate Hitler and a guerrilla army to the region around Lake Toplitz.
In the Alpine Fortress, time ran out on the Reich. By April 1945, Hitler was dead in Berlin, and the Allies were closing in all around. You could actually hear the artillery echoing in the mountains. Many of the last leaders of the Nazi regime fled there - some to make a last stand, others to try to save some remnant of the Reich in hope of starting over one day.
And Adolf Berger's work was essential to that plan.
The cargo was so well hidden that, chances are, no one would have ever seen the boxes again if it weren't for a 21-year-old Austrian farm girl. Ida Weisenbacher saw where the boxes went. She lives in the same house near Lake Toplitz where Nazi soldiers found her 55 years ago.
"It was five o'clock in the morning, we were still in bed when we heard the knock on the door," remembered Weisenbacher. "'Get up immediately hitch up the horse wagon, we need you.'"
They needed the wagon because the truck had reached the end of the road. Only horses could make it to Toplitz. "A commander was there. He told us to bring these boxes as fast as possible to Lake Toplitz," added Weisenbacher.
She said each box was labeled with bold-painted letters and a corresponding number.
She carried three wagonloads to the lake. "When I brought the last load, I saw how they went on to the lake and dropped the boxes into the water.... The S.S. kept shoving me away but I saw the boxes were sunk into the lake," said Weisenbacher.
The Nazis knew that searching a place so cold, so dark, and so deep wouldn't be possible with the technology of the time. But they couldn't have foreseen a phantom in the future.
The Phantom is a deep-diving robot operated by Oceaneering Technologies in Maryland connected by a tether to a pilot on the surface. Jeff Kowalishen is one of the pilots of the underwater craft: "It's hard to hide something from this type of equipment."
Oceaneering uses The Phantom around the world on some of the toughest jobs imaginable. It was Oceaneering that recovered the wreckage of the Space Shuttle Challenger, lifted TWA Flight 800 off the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean and located the aircraft of John F. Kennedy Jr.
60 Minutes II hired Oceaneering to search every inch of Lake Toplitz and recover the boxes if they could be found. "No one has tried at Toplitz to do this, but we have done this type of work all over the world," said Kowalishen.
But in that part of the world, the project wasn't entirely welcome. The region once known as the Alpine Fortress still celebrates its traditions, but many Austrians don't like dredging up reminders of a Nazi past.
It was in the winter of 1999 that negotiations were started with the Austrian government and the country's forestry service. After being assured the project wouldn't hurt the environment, the Austrians agreed to lease the lake for 30 days - an incredibly tight schedule for what the Oceaneering team was about to attempt.
There had been other dives in Lake Toplitz over the years, and artifacts related to the project had been raised before. But this expedition was to be the first comprehensive search of Toplitz. The dive would cost over $600,000, with major funding provided by the World Jewish Congress.
Toplitz doesn't seem large until you search it inch by inch. The video image relayed from the remote submarine is only three feet wide. The first thing Oceaneering found was a layer of silt on the bottom that often blew like a blizzard, blinding the camera.
Team member Ian Griffith of San Francisco is an expert on the remote-controlled subs. "If we are too high, we are not going to see anything. If we are too low, we are going to destroy the visibility and not see anything," he said.
For 12 hours a day, the crew strained for some familiar shape. "We have four pilots. You can only do it for so long, and then it really becomes monotonous," said Griffith.
But there was no hint of anything like Adolf Burger's boxes. It was possible the boxes were buried or covered in silt. It was also possible, after 55 years, they had just crumbled away.
The long days turned into weeks - nearly three weeks of searching. The submarine would cover more than 35 miles altogether. The 30-day deadline imposed by the Austrians was getting closer. And Oceaneering couldn't get a break from the lake.
To the tethered mini-sub, the lake floor was a minefield. Oceaneering expected trees but not underwater forests. Trees had fallen from the mountain and were stacked 60 feet high in some places. The Phantom would spend days lost in the woods.
And when it wasn't the trees, it was the weather.
The picture-postcard lake often developed a foul mood. There were hailstorms and lightning.
The crew figured it was out of luck when a bolt of lightning struck the navigation system, and the search pattern wasn't reliable anymore. But Kowalishen wanted to press on, guiding The Phantom by dead reckoning and as it turns out, dumb luck.
Then a discovery was made -- not the intact boxes the crew hoped to find, but the remains of something decades old, pieces of wood that might have come from the Nazi crates."
"Ukrainian workers recently found strange graves at a construction site in the Ukraine. They thought it was an ancient Scythian graveyard until someone spotted the medallion of a German soldier in one of the coffins. When archeologists arrived, they were shocked to find that some of the human skeletons had their spines sawn lengthwise. Some did not have heads, while others had skull trepanation (holes drilled in them), as if they were trying to create a "third eye."
Experts decided the bodies were victims of the Ahnenerbe, the most secret organization of the Nazi Third Reich. The victims were not Jews—they were what Germans called “Aryans,” the “pure race.” Ahnenerbe’s doctors were doing medical experiments on them, trying to create a new breed of human being.
Ahnenerbe, which means “Ancestors’ Inheritance,” was founded in 1933 by philosopher Friedrich Gilscher, along with a Dr. Hirt. After the Nazis gained power, Ahnenerbe was entrusted with searching for the traditions of the Indo- German Nordic race. In 1937, the organization became part of the SS. Their studies were designed to prove the superiority of the Aryan race in order to vindicate Nazi racial policies, and some of Germany’s best scientists did this research. They went on expeditions to the Middle East, Ukraine, and Tibet. When Soviet troops entered Berlin in 1945, they were surprised to find thousands of Tibetan corpses in SS uniforms.
In the summer of 1944, Hirt was ordered to destroy his laboratories. He didn’t manage to do it before the allies arrived, so troops found many beheaded corpses. Hirt disappeared afterwards and was later seen, along with other escaped Nazis, in Chile and in Paraguay.
Ahnenerbe’s members were all tall, muscular, blond men, like most Nazis (except, interestingly enough, for Hitler himself). They were supposed to get married in their twenties to racially pure women (again, Hitler remained single). Karl Maria Willigut, a black magician with a large influence on Nazi high-ranking officials, was the most famous person in the organization.
They tried to invent a psychotropic weapon for mind control, and did experiments on humans. By the end of the war, Nazis were testing “flying disks,” and Ahnenerbe may have had a large air base in Antarctica. There are rumors that this base still exists and that there is an underground city there called New Berlin with a population of 2 million people who work on genetic engineering and space exploration. Indirect proof of this is the fact that UFOs are often be seen around the South Pole. In 1976, the Japanese saw 19 round objects there in a single sighting."
"After forty years, the Chilean authorities have broken up the Colonia Dignidad commune, which was founded by escaped Nazis and Nazi sympathizers. It aided the cruel military dictatorship of that has been accused of aiding the former military dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet.
BBC News reports that former Nazi Paul Schaefer, aged 83, is being accused of aiding secret police under Chile's 1973-1990 military rule and also of sexually abusing 26 children. He was arrested in March after hiding out for eighteen years. Along with other Colonia Dignidad leaders, he was suspected of keeping the 300 remaining residents in the camp against their will. An American reporter who investigated the colony was never seen again.
One American who visited this evil encampment and DID make it out again is Peter Levenda, who has done a special report on the conditions he saw there for Dreamland radio. We asked Peter for his reaction to the closing of Colonia Dignidad.
Levenda says, "I applaud the Chilean government for its decision to close, once and for all, that obscenity known as Colonia Dignidad, although it seems to me that a state- appointed exorcist might do better for the place than a state- appointed lawyer at this point!
"The Colony has existed for more than 40 years, and during that time it has been home to so much horror, pain and bloodshed that the land itself must cry out. The people who have lived there all of their lives should be the first consideration for any government-sponsored mental health program. Few of the Colony's inhabitants when I was there spoke Spanish; German and English were the preferred tongues. They lived in total isolation from the rest of the world, and knew only Schaefer as their spiritual and political leader. We have an unprecedented opportunity to study people who have lived under this kind of brutal, totalitarian regime -- a Jonestown in the Andes -- and more importantly to help them rejoin the rest of society. It will not be easy, either for them or for the Chilean government or its people, but it must be done.
"For me, it is like the end of an era. Since I visited—gate- crashed—there in 1979 till the present day, I have been writing about it, speaking about it, and agitating for something to be done about the Colony. It is finally being put to rest, the doors opened, the people allowed—encouraged— to leave. I hope the Chilean government will be swift in opening its files on this case, revealing to everyone what really went on at the Colony, and equally swift in prosecuting Paul Schaefer, the founder and commandant of one of the most notorious interrogation and torture centers in the western hemisphere. I fear that such revelations might demonstrate a close working relationship between the Pinochet regime and our own government, however, and that therefore we may have to wait a long time before the whole story is known. "
"A reader writes: "I am a lawyer from Chile currently living in Florida. Talking of disappeared Nazis, you spoke (with Nick Cook on Sept. 28 Dreamland) of a place in Chile that was only recently closed down. Unfortunately, I must inform you that such place, formerly known as 'Colonia Dignidad,' still exists." A former SS officer used local slave labor to build an empire, where he founded a hospital that sterilizes poor against their will and steals their newborn children. He has sexually abused hundreds of minors. U.S. citizen Boris Weisfeiler was captured by Augusto Pinochet and taken to Colonia Dignidad, where he has never been seen again"
do you all have any iformation about these things? or heard stories?
i heard that the US had its own paranormal war with hitler. hmmmm.

its been coming to my attention that the fact that zombies mite exist may be more true than we thought.
just facts and stooph i read just make is seem, well, possible.
